An Artist Edition
Coinciding with the opening of Douglas Coupland: everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything will be the release of Doug’s Artist Edition, titled Lego as Self Portrait, which was created specifically for the Vancouver Art Gallery. Using Lego, one of his favourite art supplies, Coupland has created large-scale artworks such as Towers and 345 Modern House both of which will be on view for the first time in his solo exhibition. In Lego as Self-Portrait he uses these building blocks to create an abstract portrait of himself, stacking them vertically until the column replicates his exact height; the work consists of 194 Lego bricks, hermetically sealed inside a clear Plexiglas sleeve.
Note that this edition will be available for sale from May 31, 2014 and it cannot be shipped; it must be picked up in person from the Gallery Store. One per person.
